The recent Dominoes promotion at Woolworths got my kids re-excited about Dominoes. The other night we were going to make standard choc chip cookies and then I saw the Woolies dominoes on the kitchen bench and got this idea. Already all the kids’ friends at school have asked if I can make a double batch – they want to have a game of Choc Chip Dominoes!
Ingredients (serves 20 | makes 20 biscuits)
- 1 cup icing Mixture (well sifted)
- 375g Butter (well softened)
- 4 cups Plain Flour
- 1/2 cup Nestle Bakers Choice Mini Milk Choc Bits
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius - 175 degrees for a fan forced oven.
- Place the softened butter and the Icing Sugar into a mixing bowl and beat together with an electric mixer for 3 - 5 minutes to achieve a lovely soft creamy mixture.
- Reduce the speed of your mixer to low and very gradually add the plain flour. I do it half a cup at a time to prevent the flour flying everywhere when you add it in.
- The mixture will be quite stiff once you have added all the flour (this is OK).
- Place 1 tbsp of icing sugar into your sifter and cover your benchtop or baking sheet with icing sugar. Turn the dough mixture out onto the icing sugar and knead gently to bring it together into one firm ball of dough.
- Line a square/rectangular cake tin or square/rectangular tupperware container with cling wrap and then press in the dough. Place into the fridge for at least 60 minutes until the dough is quite firm to touch.
- Sprinkle another tablespoon of icing sugar onto your working surface and turn the dough out of the square tray. Using a large chef's knife slice the dough into domino sized pieces and place onto a large biscuit tray. I aimed for about 5cm long x 3cm wide. Repeat until all dough is used. There should be no need for a rolling pin if you cut carefully.
- Using a butter knife, score a dividing line into each domino then arrange the Nestle Mini Milk Choc Bits accordingly to create your dominoes.
- Cook until only just turning brown rotating baking tray during cooking (approx 10 minutes depending on your oven). Remove from oven and cool on tray. These cookies are quite crumbly so best to leave them alone until completely cooled.
This is the most basic biscuit recipe and it's one we've used for years. The good thing is that it hold shape when you're working the dough and doesn't spread out in the oven so perfect for shaped cookies.
